CPR Counts and the BBC! Listen to the Broadcasts at Streetly Sports & Community Association.

On 16th October 2018, World Restart A Heart Day, we had a reporter from BBC Radio WM at our course at Streetly Sports & Community Association.

Below, you can listen to the results that were broadcast the following morning on the Alex Lester programme. With permission of BBC Radio WM

I was also delighted to welcome two of the people involved in the ‘chain of survival’ that enabled me to survive last year’s cardiac arrest. These are Judy Lewis who started the ball rolling with CPR and Dr Derek Connolly who put stents in my coronary arteries, at Birmingham’s City Hospital, to restore my heart’s circulation.

Radio WM really went to town with the event on Alex Lester’s breakfast programme. I made the main news at 6, 7, 8 and 9am and you can also hear interviews with Judy, Mike Bennett, our tutor, and some of those attending the course.

I hope this encourages you to encourage others to learn how to save a life.
